Mark Edelson, nine-time recipient of the prestigious Newspaper Picture Editor of the Year award, passed away on April 23, 2015.
In lieu of flowers, Mark’s family has asked donations be made to the newly established Mark J. Edelson Picture Editing Scholarship administered through the National Press Photographers Foundation.
Recipients of the scholarship/fund receive $1,500 aid in attending The Kalish, a visual editing workshop in which Mark was a cornerstone faculty member for 20 years.
As Multimedia Director at the Palm Beach Post, Mark and his staff earned hundreds of awards in the Best of Photojournalism, Pictures of the Year International, Society for News Design and Best Use of Photography contests. True to form, Mark always felt it was his good fortune and opportunity to work closely with — both learn from and guide — nine regional photographers of the year and derived as much knowledge and inspiration as any of the students during the numerous workshops and seminars during his career.
